BBC Trust looks at launching a free satellite TV service as a joint venture with Channel 4 and ITV. The approved plan is not in its final stages as of yet.

Trust divulged that this venture could increase competition with Sky and affect subscription services. It also has an advantage over Freeview in that it could support more high definition channels, and it will be available in 27% of the countries that cannot presently receive Freeview due to reception problems with the digital signal. Presently, Trust’s channels are available at no charge through Sky’s Freesat Service, with a setup box and one time installation fee for £150."Overall, we believe a 'Freesat' service to be in the public interest and we hope that other public service broadcasters would join the BBC in a joint venture", said the Trust's announcement.
